Classification-Taxonomic classification is the hierarchical organization of living beings into categories and subcategories that reveal their likenesses. The groupings used in this type of classification are called taxa, the plural of taxon, hence the name of the classification system. There are eight main levels in the currently used and internationally accepted taxonomic classification system, which has its foundations in the work of Carl Linnaeus. These levels are:

Kingdom > Phylum/Division > Class > Order > Family > Genus > Species >Variety.
